As discussed on IRC, adding a CacheUser method for telling
AccountsService about users not present in passwd such as
users provided by winbind or sssd.
/var/lib/AccountsService/users is enumerated and any file names
that return valid users via getpwnam() are added to the list
of cached users.
Add a new CacheUser() method which writes a file to that directory.
This is a dependency of the kerberos user identities control

daemon: Add CacheUser() DBus method
* Caches a user so that it becomes visible via ListCachedUsers()
* The user account must be accessible via getpwnam()
* Refactor how reloading of users works, if user is present in
multiple sources track how many places loaded, and only
unregister if gone from all.
Saw a bug. After this change DeleteUser() no longer results in users 'going away'. Will look into it.
Make sure you aren't just seeing:
(which is fixed in latest systemd git)
